pendulum

words

trip me like the sharp edges

of a road

silence

stuns me like the vacuum

in a balloon

-when it pops

this heart

beats like a broken pendulum 

always crashing into things 

and itself

-the uneven ticker tock

out of luck

capture

the air in my breath

put it in a jar

leave me breathless

pinprick eyes

tunnel vision staring far 

into the pinpricks of distant stars
